Her only American tribute was when Bebe Buell named her spawn by Steven Tyler after her.
As for the Oscar, Liv and Let Liv.
You lot must be too young to remember Simone Signoret and Sophia Loren won the best actress Oscars back in 1959 and 1961.
Liv certainly wouldnt win for any of her American movies ..... but yes she and Ingrid should have tied for Autumn Sonata in 1978.
Jane Fonda won in 1978...I never get that one. I guess it was connected to her Vietnam activism but Coming Home is a boring performance. I was shocked to read Jill Clayburgh lost that year too. I always thought she won.
r5, IB was born in Stockholm.
As for 'Autumn Sonata': Ullmann is great, as usual, but her performance isn't wildly different from 'Face to Face' or 'Scenes from a Marriage', for which she should have won. (Yes, I realize the latter is a tv mini-series which was cut to a theatrical release in the US).
Ingrid Bergman has arguably the more challenging part in 'Autumn Sonata'; she has to convey maternal love, indifference, derision, regret, embarrassment... sometimes all in one take. And she pulls it off.
It's a more quiet yet nuanced performance than Ullmann's, and therefore Bergman deserved her nomination.
Wow, r13, that r5 post just flew right over your little head, didn't it?
I never miss a Liv Ullmann musical.
She's also a terrific director as anyone who saw the production of STREETCAR with Cate Blanchett will attest.
And before anyone gets too rhapsodic about Blanchett, I think Ullman deserves credit for guiding Blanchett's superb performance as the latter's previous NYC stage appearance in NYC in HEDDA GABLER was underwhelming, to put it nicely. But that whole production was horrid.
"Autmn Sonata" is one of Bergman's greatest performances. Liv is fine but Ingrid is incredible.
What about a Tony- or not?!
I agree, R15. I credit Liv Ullman with getting out of Blanchett a performance that was more from the gut than anything Blanchett had done before.
I saw Blanchett in UNCLE VANYA last year and I didn't understand the hype about her performance. She was not nearly as luminous and captivating as she was in STREETCAR.
I eat shit.
Yes OP. At the very least she should have more nominations. OK so Scenes from a Marriage was hampered by the TV rule, but she was drop dead amazing in Sonata, every bit the equal of Ingrid, really better.
Speaking of Ingrid I need to get that TV movie she did where she played the Israeli prime minister. That along with Sonata, her final performances, have been said to be the best.
The role of Mama in I Remember Mama seems tailor made for her.
Yet she flopped on Broadway.
What went wrong?
If you heard her sing, R21, you'd know why it flopped (she was thankfully dubbed in LOST HORIZON). Plus Richard Rogers was way, way past his prime at that point. The show itself was terrible.
There are worst singers that have appeared on Broadway.
